of things that matter most

for Christmas, emcat gave me a harry potter one-a-day calendar, not unlike the far side calendars that i had for years growing up.  some days have a still from a movie, some have little trivia facts about the cast and crew (the girl who plays ginnie had her birthday not too long ago...), and some have quotes from the movies.
this stood out to me as i read it again tonight, making me glad i hadn't torn the days off since before my trip:

luna: we both believe you, by the way.  that he who must not be named is back, and you fought him, and the ministry and the prophet are conspiring against you and dumbledore.

harry: thanks.  seems you're about the only ones that do.

luna: i don't think that's true.  but i suppose that's how he wants you to feel.

harry: what do you mean?

luna: well, if i were you-know-who, i'd want you to feel cut off from everyone else.  because if it's just you alone, you're not as much of a threat.

*like* to jamiei's comment (atta girl)

and *like* to this post.

reminds me of this for some reason.

and you know this, and i know you know; you're not alone. you have some friends who are only a phone call away. :) and others only a prayer away.

pretty cool.

Leave it to Luna to be the voice of sanity.

Never let 'em get you down!
